Features

  • The Royal Promenade. The heart of Explorer and Voyager is this wonderful "street", with shops, sidewalk cafes, a pub, sports bar and even self-serve frozen yogurt. It's perfect for people-watching during the day and at night the parade of brightly costumed performers is a blast.

  • The Viking Crown Lounge. A stunning lounge perched 14 decks above the water (don't look down if you have a fear of heights!), decorated with jazz-themed art and a bronze statue of Dizzy Gillespie.

  • The Connoisseur Cigar Club. Pity those of us who don't smoke cigars. One of the most beautiful cigar lounges at sea, with cozy seating, rich red walls and art that dazzles.

  • The Chamber Night Club. Visit this wild spot, even if you don't boogie. This two-level nightclub is reminiscent of the "Limelight" nightclub in New York City, built in an old church, and one of the hottest nightspots in the city.

  • Art. An amazing array of modern art, including "Art Stars," with works by Tony Curtis, Anthony Quinn, Peter Falk, Miles Davis and Billy Dee Williams. Don't miss Herb Alpert's prints and sculptures or Annie Liebovitz's photos of celebrities.

  • Skylight Chapel. Say "I Do" in this beautiful chapel (weddings only in port), located 15 decks above the sea and bring up to 60 friends and families.

  • The Solarium. Spanish bullfighters and a huge bull are the theme art of this sybaritic oasis of tranquility with palm trees, fountains, statues, huge jacuzzis and a retractable sun roof.

  • Ice Skating Rink. Wonderful shows by professional skaters at night but you can also don skates yourself and twirl during the daytime.

Fine Dining

It's not easy to find such an array of restaurants when travelling unless you bring them with you.You've spent the afternoon shopping, sightseeing and strolling streets far from home. Now who wants to search for the perfect restaurant? That's the beauty of traveling with RCCL. You can roam the world, and still come back onboard to your favorite restaurants each night. Ones with cuisine as varied and delightful as the countries you're visiting. Dine on fresh salmon or try authentic Costoletta di Vitello from Italy. Of course, if you prefer, you can still dine or good old American steak. Isn't having your own restaurant great?

Perfect Days

Once you board a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the stage has already been set for perfection: You're already far from work, you're already taking in some of the most beautiful sights in the world and you're enjoying some of the finest weather on the planet. The choices you make from here on out will only improve on perfection.

Take a dip in the crystal-clear swimming pool, get a facial, relax in a poolside whirlpool. When the ship is in port, take an organized shore excursion - or explore the islands on your own.

Get Pumped!

Start off the day with an invigorating and fun workout in the ShipShape Fitness Center.

This world class fitness center features state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment and many aerobic fitness classes to choose from for all levels. Enjoy the fresh sea air jogging on the outdoor track or  get in a game of basketball.

Get Pampered!

Who deserves to be pampered more than you? NOBODY! The ShipShape Spa is the perfect place to relax, restore, and rejuvenate. Try a therapeutic body massage, seaweed wrap, oil and mudbath treatment, or manicure. Come on, you know you've always wanted a facial. How about a new hairstyle, cut or color?

Get Shopping!

You can find everything you want shopping in duty free   boutiques: a unique souvenir for that special friend, designer cruise wear for lounging pool side or a piece of fine cyrstal that will look perfect on your bookshelf. And just in case you forgot suntan lotion, or need a razor, the on board boutiques also offer a full line of sundries.
